Details

It seems both CAcert (class 1 and class 3) root certificates are in the file cacert.org.crt. However, it seems OpenSSL can only find the class 1 certificate.

After splitting the class 3 certificate into its own file and updating the ca-certificates, it works correctly.
This task depends upon

This is working fine here for the clients I tested. How did you check this?

openssl verify my_cacert_class3_cert.crt

Failed with "20 X509_V_ERR_UNABLE_TO_GET_ISSUER_CERT_LOCALLY: unable to get local issuer certificate" prior to my change.

Also, Firefox refused to connect to https://cats.cacert.org

This is a little bit strange because the Makefile for cacert.org is the only one which do a "cat root.crt class3.crt > cacert.org.crt" instead of "install -m 644" for every file. Just for the stats opensuse ships class 1 and class 3 in different files too.

Okay, i take a copy from testing and replace the Makefile to have two separate files but firefox do the same with https://cats.cacert.org as before. Are there better tests to check this?

Sounds crazy that c_rehash has to be changed because if the authors of ca-certificates stops copying two crt's into one crt in only one of the Makefiles than this would be a faster solution for the same problem. Could we do this instead of waiting for a change in c_rehash?

@Pierre Thanks for the infos.
